Hey guys, a guy I know was telling me of the el nino still playing a big effect this year on ice fishing. Supposedly it is going to be a terrible year for ice fishing (again)…..any thoughts from you guys???

Randy, this is your time to shine!

I've heard that NOAA can't make a true estimate of the effects of this year's el nino until they get more water temp readings in November.

Did somebody say "El Nino?"

The winter outlook according to NOAA would lead us to believe there is a 50% or greater chance that our winter in the upper midwest will be warmer than normal. That outlook is based primarily on the developing El Nino. Like DH said, it'll depend a lot on how the el nino develops over the next couple months. Receiving the first snow and cold plunge earlier than normal is something that tends to happen frequently in el nino events, so for now things are falling into place, but...

While I believe their scientists know a whole lot more than I do about weather, I don't buy long range forecasts and I'm not sold that this year's ice fishing season will be a stinker.

Just my 2 cents.

I won't be too upset if we do have another January like last winter. That made for some good winter trout fishing conditions.

      Is there a public access on the lake? I see it is stocked so Im guessing it must be a public lake. Would like to try and fish for lakers through the ice..

      Here's another issue can't play this video: 23 minutes ago, curt quesnell said: Mid January rolls in and fishing remains pretty good on LOTW.  Shot this video Monday. Last round of snow added a million pillow drifts of a foot or two tall.  Off road travel is possible but not like it was last week .NCOR MLK Day Report.mp4     Sorry, there is a problem We could not locate the item you are trying to view.

      I would like to fish walleye and crappies, very new to this as it has been many years since I have ice fished! Using Ice Castle so not as mobile as a person could be with a portable fish house. Appreciate any feedback, Thanks!

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.
